Asus p5ld2 deluxe ranlike a champ until I added 2 additional 1gb sticks of RAM itbeeps whenthe power is turned on but will notboot


it doesn't like the ram obviously,
  • 240-pin DDR2 DIMM Banking: 4 (2 banks of 2)
  • Chipset: Intel 945P
  • DDR2 SDRAM Frequencies: PC2-4200 and PC2-5300
  • Error Detection Support: Non-ECC only
  • Graphics Support: PCI Express x16
  • Max Component Density: 1024
  • Max Unbuffered DDR2 SDRAM: 4096MB
  • Module Types Supported: Unbuffered only
  • Supported DRAM Types: DDR2 SDRAM only
  • USB Support: 2.x Compliant


  • make sure you installed the correct speed of ram, secondly if the ram speed is correct take out one sitck at a time, and try to boot, it's possible that one is bad from factory.

    Can i use DDR2 RAM instead of DDR1


    YES, if your motherboard accepts DDR Sdram, and DDR2 Sdram ram memory. If your motherboard has both types of ram memory slots.

    BUT, you can ONLY use DDR Sdram, OR, DDR2 Sdram.

    You Cannot use both types of ram memory in the motherboard, at the same time.
    (BIOS will only recognize one type at a time)


    NO, if your motherboard does not have ram slots for both DDR Sdram, and DDR2 Sdram ram memory.

    Double Data Rate Sdram ram memory modules, have 184 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
    92 on Each side,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

    (You can click on the above photo to enlarge)

    DDR2 Sdram ram memory modules have 240 contact pins.
    120 on Each side.

    Can i upgrade my ram to ddr3 if so what would you recomend .cheers


    Thank you for the clarification sir.
    NO, the Fujitsu Scalio 600 Media Center uses the Gigabyte GA-8ISXT-FS motherboard, and it only supports DDR Sdram.

    This is a PDF Motherboard Manual for the GA-8ISXT-FS mobo, from Fujitsu Support,

    http://uk.ts.fujitsu.com/rl/servicesupport/techsupport/Boards/Motherboards/GigaByte/ga-8isxt/Man_8isxt-fs_uk.pdf

    This is the support page for the Fujitsu Scalio 600 Media Center,
    from Fujitsu Support,

    http://uk.ts.fujitsu.com/rl/servicesupport/techsupport/consumer/MediaCenter/Scaleo%20600/Scaleo%20600.htm

    Uses either DDR Sdram at 333MegaHertz, or 400MHz.
    (PC2700 and PC3200 respectively)

    DDR Sdram has 184 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
    DDR2 Sdram has 240 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
    DDR3 Sdram has the same amount of contact pins as DDR2.

    The voltage and signal contact pins are in a different place, from DDR2 to DDR3.
    This is why the locating notch on the bottom of the ram stick, is in a different place, comparing DDR2 to DDR3.

    So you can see, DDR3 not fit in a DDR2 slot, because the locating lug in the bottom of the ram slot, and the locating notch in the bottom of the ram stick. Keeps people from trying to put DDR3 in a DDR2 slot, and vice-versa.

    You can also see why a 240 pin ram stick, will not fit in a 184 pin ram slot.

    Bumping up from DDR to DDR2 does make a difference in my book. (Requires using a motherboard that supports DDR2 however, so you would need a different motherboard)

    Going from DDR2 to DDR3? Not so much IMHO. The frequency rate is higher, but there is a trade off with slower ram timings.

    Sorry if I have been too 'Windy', but I thought I would give you more information, than just,
    'No, won't work', or No won't work because your motherboard uses DDR Sdram'.
